I've been running into some weird issues though -- for one clip, when I attempt to encode the source huffyuv file directly, the resulting mpeg file ends up with some weird pulsing artifacts. If I encode the source file to Xvid, I get no such artifacts. The really strange thing is that if I take that high-bitrate Xvid and encode it to mpeg2, the resulting mpeg2 file is just fine. I really have no idea what's going on.
